595 lb squat today:  https://www.instagram.com/p/BeyZdaOB7pZ/

Just saw this, congrats! Didnt look like a grinder either. 600+ easy

Your hip is doing ok? Amazing to come back so strong so fast after that (I'm a little jelly lol)

I have not had anything to post in ....well years in this thread.

This is not really "heavy" but it is kinda "heavy' for no-handed squats.

I have been doing heavy deads since Jan 1 and figured I would compliment my desire to bring my core back up doing these type squats.  (they really work the core...especially going to max depth and without a belt)  You can feel you gut kinda grinding it out.



EDIT:  not sure why I cant get the vids to embed direct?....but hyper links work.....

315



365



405




225 Warm-down.  These are my "fun sets" where I really feel connected with the weight

It's funny that you say that because in my own self-deprecating way I call my workout circus tricks at times.

On the flip side it really connects you with your legs better than anything I've ever done. I feel fairly certain I could squat more weight that I did previously when I go back to normal squatting.

You should try it. When you do it you have no choice but to be in a perfect groove and that might squeeze another 10 to 20 lb out of your squat. Your forum is so much better than mine it might not have as large a benefit. But it is worth a shot just to play with.

You need an SSB bar or better yet, a belt squat machine.  Strong though.

I'm entertaining guesses on how high people think I was? 2,3,4, 6inches?

Better than I expected.  :clap:

Not good enough for a meet but better than 99% of gym squats.  Looked heavy as fook for you though.  Good job.

It was heavy. Damn heavy.

Shortly thereafter, a lady stopped Sabrina in the womens room and said "Your husband is crazy."

All serious powerlifters are crazy.  We do what 99.9999999% of people cannot do, won't do, fear to do, or don't have the self discipline to do.

When I am sitting on that bench wrapping my knees for a 6 plate squat attempt and I am thinking "this is gonna hurt, this is heavy, this would kill most guys my age, etc."  then I just finish wrapping my knees and do it anyway.  NOT NORMAL.

Can't tell from that angle, proper angle and singlet you might well have been parallel.  :dunno:
